Strangers, The (2008) 
Subpar, Not Scary
2/4 stars

I had high expectations coming into this film because its trailer was really good. I was really disappointed with movie because there weren’t enough thrills. With its running time of barely an hour and thiry minutes, it spent too much of its time trying to get its audiences to care for its characters. But when the “scares” actually finally happened, it was more laughable than anything because the characters made one stupid decision after another like most horror films out there. Liv Tyler is pretty good because she conveyed a lot of different emotions but her character was helpless most of the time. I would’ve liked to see her a bit tougher and less terrorized. For a short full feature film, I feel like they ran around the house for five hours, not really accomplishing anything other than waste my time. The factor that saved this movie for me was Glenn Howerton. When he finally appeared on screen, he was kind of amusing and the tension was at its peak because he arrived when everything was happening all at once. A few scenes like those made it somewhat entertaining. As for the rest of the picture, it didn’t make much sense nor was it truly terrifying. I came out of the theater thinking “Wow, that’s it?” and most people did, too. Just Netflix it when it comes out. It’s not worth the ten dollars.
